Astro and TM go sports crazy on new HyppTV arrangement

Malaysian content provider and carrier collab to televise BPL and associated content

It’s good news for sports fans in Malaysia. TM’s IPTV service, HyppTV, will finally get a boost in its sports content offering in their collaboration with satellite TV service provider, Astro.

The big news is that HyppTV subscribers will finally have the option to watch selected Barclays Premier League (BPL) matches with the inclusion of Astro SuperSport HD and Astro Supersport 2 HD into its stable of sports channels. The two-year contract effectively starts on 1st August and boosts HyppTV’s sports channel offering to 13 channels from its previous 11.

The old Sports Pack offering was priced at RM30 so with the addition of the two new channels, it’s been upped to RM50. However existing subscribers will be getting the two additional channels for free and will be able to maintain the RM30 subscription indefinitely (at least until TM decides to up it RM50). Not a subscriber yet but tempted for some BPL goodness? HyppTV actually has the package  on offer at RM30 till 31st September but after that it'll be the full RM50.
